New Track: “Soup Boys (Pretty Drones)” (Prod. by Lushlife) - Heems

Here's a dope new Lushlife-produced track below for Das Racist’s Heems called “Soup Boys (Pretty Drones).” Lush will be performing live this Saturday at Underground Arts for the Bibliodiscotheque Dance Party & 215 Fest Music Showcase.


Free Download: "Move!" (Lushlife Remix Dub) - Les Professionnels

Here's a dub remix that you can download for free by Lushlife of local homies Les Professionnel's "Move!", which was originally a fist-pumper that found its way on this season's premiere of MTV's Jersey Shore. The remix is part of Potholes in My Lawn's Robot Soup, the fourth compilation in their producer showcase series. Lush is performing live tonight for free at The Delancey (Upstairs) for The Deli CMJ Electronic showcase.  


Deli CMJ Electro/Avant Pop Stages at The Delancey 10.18 with Wildlife Control, Dynasty Electric, Dinosaur Feathers, Il Abanico, Cultfever + more


This is going to be the longest list of this whole series of announcements. On Thursday, we're once again taking over both floors of The Delancey with upstairs, a line-up of electro up-and-comers from all sides of the spectrum and downstairs, some creative pop gems fitting under the Avant Pop label, for a total of.. NINETEEN acts! So enough chit-chat, let's get to the list, because that is sure going to take up enough space.

Opening the (free!) upstairs show, Thomas Simon's ghostly mixes, followed by the bizarre folk-tronic experiments of Max Horwich's Sewing Machines, Cultfever's chaotic outputs and Railbird's more intimate creations. Next up, we've got three out-of-towners, i.e SF's Maus Haus, Philly's electro/hip hop artist Lushlife, and finally, Anomie Belle, from Seattle, co-headlining the show with NYC's own Dynasty Electric. Then, taking it to the later hours of the evening, Ducky, and Drop Electric (coming from DC).

Downstairs, our two headliners will be Dinosaur Feathers (top picture) and Wildlife Control, who both released this year a delicious new album, second for the former and a first for the latter. We've also got, on this stage, three acts coming from Los Angeles: openers American Royalty, shoegaze-pop band Letting Up Despite Great Faults, and Kiven, who will be closing the show. Add to this Columbian transplants Il Abanico, Conveyor, whom we covered in our last print issue, the catchy jams of five-piece Modern Rivals and finally, Santah, coming from Chicago, and.. I believe WE'RE DONE! In the pictures: Dynasty Electric & Wildlife Control.

New Video: “Rosa Parks” (OutKast Cover) - Lushlife

SPARKStacular at PhilaMOCA Oct. 6

PhilaMOCA is hosting a SPARKStacular tonight to celebrate the music and career of the band Sparks. Over their 41 year career, the Mael brothers have managed to release 22 albums over a wide range of musical genres and are showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. They also just concluded a European tour. The party will begin with an art show/memorabilia reception, followed by the premiere of Video Pirates’ hour long video history of the band compiled from found footage. After the film, various artists will be performing covers of their favorite Sparks songs. The lineup includes local musicians Lushlife, Shawn Kilroy’s Weird Hot, and Christen Hooks of Disco Machine Gun with a string quartet among others. The event is also being filmed for a documentary on the band titled, Never Turn Your Back On Sparks. Be sure to come out and celebrate this influential band… and get in the movie too. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 7pm, $10 donation, 21+ - Dan Brightcliffe
